Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is a busy man, but he made sure on Tuesday while consulting with IDF brass in northern Israel to share a cup of coffee with Israeli soldiers deployed on the border with Lebanon.

“Do you know how they make this in the Arab countries?” Netanyahu asks, and then he proceeds to explain the procedure for preparing a good cup of Arabic coffee in a feenjan — the small, one-handled pot that is synonymous with the Middle East.
“Who made this coffee?” Netanyahu asked after drinking a cup with the troops.
“He did,” a few of the men pointed at a soldier to the side.
Turning to the soldier, the prime minister grinned. “Salaam.”
